    I like those double spools on those new spinners. :) I bet you just pulled up a chair and sat there for hours checking out those dual spools.:eek:

    One must watch for high inital costs and very expensive up-keep. :)

    I agree. I'd like to see a close up picture of those spools with the covered protectors off. I always like to hold the spools in my hand to see if they are soft or hard. I've found that hard spools are usually filled with silicone that has gone bad. I like my spools soft with a large capacity. It looks like you have different models of spools in the pictures. Please give close up of each model so I can make up my mind. I'm very particular about my spools. Thanks.

    Oh Yea! I see the spinner NOW!!

    These models must have that new two-speed rotor oscillation that Shimano just released!

    When I was younger and picked up a well built spinner I would mount it to a very stiff fast action rod. Now that I'm middle aged, that spinner gets mounted to a medium fast action rod. I dread the day when I only have a slow parabolic action rod to mount on a nice spinner.

    Avet also told us that within a month of the Hoo X release, they are releasing an extra narrow (by about 3/4") Hoo X geared toward the jig angler.

    That looks like a big popping cork. I'm sure there will be some unpleasant remarks done as soon as GS see it.

    Heck that Milk Crate rival looks like if it was insulated it could hold about 2 gallons of margarita or lemonade mix! Now that would be cool!

    the top red button could actually be a pump to add air pressure to pump the mix into your glass.....:D

    Will it sink faster than the normal version? :D

    I still don't understand why anybody would buy one. I could care less if the damn thing free spools for a month. Put it in gear, pour on the drag and everything goes bad. :mad: Can't crank it, pinion gear breaks and they automatically become sinkers. End of subject.

    I stole a couple out of a buddies medicine cabinet one time. :eek: I popped them, laid down and just waited for something to happen. I was under the impression that a blue steeler with catfish gills would arise quickly. I even turned off the ceiling fan just in case it exceeded my expectations :D

    Nada. I was very disappointed. With all that advertising I was expecting to be 18 years old again. Next time I steal some, I'll try them with a woman present.:)
